Director of College Success | Green Halo Scholars

Melissa Burke Headshot

I support our Green Halo alumni on their path through college and to meaningful careers by providing comprehensive academic, financial, career, and personal support to achieve college success. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Wake Forest University and a Masters of Arts in School Counseling from Boston College. Most recently, I served as a counselor at St. Francis de Sales High School in Chicago, focusing on helping seniors through the college application process. In my free time, I play competitive paddle in the winter and enjoy pickleball and tennis in the summer. I live in the Western suburbs with my husband and am raising two high school boys, who are just starting the college application process.
